National Soup Month

It has been extremely cold here this week. When it gets this cold, nothing warms you up like a nice, hot bowl of soup. This week, I have had soup at lunch a couple of times and tonight, we are having it for dinner.

With as cold as it is in January, it is no wonder that January marks National Soup Month. I imagine that I am not the only that turns to a hot bowl of soup to warm them up!

When it comes to soup, my favorite ones are those that are easy to prepare. Whether I am enjoying a made from scratch soup like my Roasted Cauliflower Cheese soup or I am simply making a can of ready to eat soup, I want it to be flavorful and satisfying. I frequently will pair it with a sandwich - who doesn't enjoy a nice grilled cheese sandwich with their tomato soup or a turkey club with a bowl of chicken noodle - or with a salad and a nice slice of bread.

With it being National Soup Month, I thought I would share with you some easy soup recipes from Hormel.

  • Chicken Taco Tortilla Soup: Ready to spice things up? This recipe features a variety of CHI-CHI'S® ingredients for a flavorful, Mexican inspired soup that will warm you right up!

  • Bacon and Potato Soup: Filled with favorites like Hormel® fully cooked bacon, the Bacon and Potato Soup is a perfect complement to a salad for lunch or dinner.

  • Chicken Noodle and Vegetable Soup: An all-time favorite of many, this recipe gives a gourmet spin on the classic chicken noodle soup and is full of flavor with Herb-Ox® chicken instant powder and Hormel® chunk breast of chicken.

For more soup ideas, check out the Hormel Foods recipe page featuring plenty more to choose from!

What soup does your family request the most during the winter? Do you prefer homemade soups or canned soups? Does your family enjoy any other soup recipes featuring Hormel Foods products?

No compensation was received for this post. All opinions expressed are mine or those of my family. I am completing this post as a participant in the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger program. Hormel Foods provided a thought starter and some of the information for this post.

Love homemade soups but don't cook them enough and just don't like canned soup.
